If you want to know what it’s like to run a full marathon on ice, at 20 below zero, in Siberia, across the deepest lake in the world – then you can ‘run’ with Chris Heaton!

He’ll be attempting to do just that on Saturday 3rd March – it’s the Lake Baikal ice marathon situated about 200 miles north of the Mongolian border. Chris will be videoing it and commenting on how he feels and how things are going as he does it.

He will then post edited highlights on his blog as soon as he can – although it may have to wait until he gets back.

Here is the link to the blog – it already has posts on his training, kit choices, photographs, and test video footage from the ‘Chris Heaton Runs’ YouTube channel!


Chris is attempting this run to raise money for Target Ovarian Cancer – the charity was set up by a friend of his who lost her mother and sister to the disease within months of each other. He promised he would do something for her – and this is it.

You can sponsor Chris on JustGiving, every single pound makes a difference!  – Thank You
